Please, even if you think some of the adulation Andrew Luck has received since shocking the sports world with his retirement is a bit much, respect the decision. But Indianapolis waived its right to recoup the money and is allowing Luck to keep it all, after the poundings he has taken and all he has given to the franchise.
It was revealed that star quarterback Andrew Luck would be retiring from the National Football League at the age of 29.
"It's a tough thing". You see, certainly, you can see me as an individual doing that. I loved throwing the ball to T.Y. Hilton. [Hilton] in the eye. Players know better than anybody what it's like to be a professional athlete and were quick to defend Luck when he was under attack from fans.
He was good enough to lead the Colts to playoff appearances in each of his first three seasons, the 2014 AFC Championship game and orchestrate the second-largest comeback in playoff history. But on Saturday, citing a long string of injuries, Luck chose to retire with Brady still playing.
Andrew Luck's retirement was a topic of conversation briefly during the Tennessee Titans' post game press conference on Sunday night, and head coach Mike Vrabel and quarterback Marcus Mariota shared their thoughts.
"What qualifies you to decide how someone should live their life?" "It's taken my joy away from the game". The 26-year-old has completed 59.1 percent of his passes for 3,500 yards, 13 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 23 games (17 starts) across three seasons. Like I said, somebody I looked up to in the game watching him in college, watching what he's done in the pros.
Player after player described how hard it was to see Miller, a Pro Bowler in 2018, go down with the injury. "The only way forward is to remove myself from this cycle". "He's just an awesome guy".
According to Ed Werder, the Colts hierarchy discussed placing Luck on injured reserve to postpone a final decision as their starting quarterback worked to return from injury.
